Cruisin’ 2021 will mark the 20th Anniversary of Cruisin’. “Over the past two decades people of all ages have enjoyed experiencing the art and engineering of our shared automotive history. The Cruisin’ Committee is grateful to be able to bring this special experience back to the community.” Ed Firestone, Chair, Cruisin’ on Main Street Committee, said.

Manchester’s Fireworks Celebration:

Due to ongoing Coronavirus limitations and out of an abundance of caution, the James “Dutch” Fogarty Fourth of July Celebration committee has made the difficult decision to recommend to Manchester’s Board of Directors that Manchester’s Fireworks Celebration, scheduled for June 26, 2021, be cancelled.  Because national, state and local public health experts don’t expect health conditions for large public gatherings to improve enough any earlier than fall of this year, and because the celebration requires several months of planning and coordination and there are active contracts involved that must be terminated in a timely manner to avoid loss of funds, the decision to recommend cancellation is one of necessity and safety.  The committee knows firsthand what this community tradition means to Manchester and it’s the committee’s goal to come back bigger, stronger and better in 2022. 


Celebrate Manchester:

Celebrate Manchester (formerly known as Pride in Manchester) has been canceled.
